Yesterday, a friend and I drove to Central New York, to visit Beaver Lake Nature Center. Neither of us had been there before, so we were curious to see what it had to offer. We weren't disappointed. The center itself is very nice, with a little exhibit area inside that has many examples of the local birds and animals of the area. There's also a little gift shop, full of all kinds of instructional and fun stuff.
Arrow Arum Plant was everywhere.
Per Woodswalker, this little flower is Pickerel Weed.
This native wild rose, called the Virginia Rose, was also new to me, though I knew of their existence. It was wonderful to see a place where these delicate beauties hadn't been overwhelmed by that much more vigorous invader, the Multiflora Rose.
